Uefa To Push For VAR Offside Changes

The use of video assistant referees for marginal offside decisions could be amended next season if a joint bid by Uefa and the home nations’ football associations succeeds.

The European governing body’s president Aleksander Ceferin told the Times there were issues with the “precision” of artificial lines drawn on the pitch to help make decisions.

Uefa will work with the four associations, which each has a vote on the board of lawmakers the International FA Board (Ifab).

Any changes to the laws would be made at Ifab’s annual general meeting in Belfast on 29 February.

There have been several controversial offside calls in the Premier League this season.

Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino had a goal ruled out against Aston Villa on 2 November after his armpit was deemed to be offside.

The same reasoning was applied to Raheem Sterling’s effort for Manchester City against Chelsea on 23 November.

But some fans and pundits have said such tight calls are ruining the spirit of the game and handing an advantage to defenders. (Reuters)
